I’m not going to preach about why the SONY MDR-7506 headphones have been part of my kit for 25 years. I’ll just say that by the time your pair starts to reach that age, you’re going to want to replace those ear pads – and probably well before they reach that ripe old age.
The fact that these cans last that long is a testament to their value and
for about $20 bucks, you breath new life into them with a set of fresh
pads. There are dozens of companies offering replacement pads and many
are just a few mouse clicks away on Amazon.com.
Putting on new ear pads is about a 10 minute investment in time and patience
and if I can do it, you can do it, too. Here’s a short video showing you how to
make the change with a brand of replacement pads from Wicked Cushions but I’ve
used other pads from other companies over the years and all have held up
well. I own 4 pairs of these Sony headsets and I believe each one now
sports a new set of pads.
Here’s a brief video of how to make the swap:
